I needed that! Boy, did I need that. My lower calorie intake is paying off and it gives me the inspiration to keep it up! I'm 5 pounds from my usual maintenance range, 10 pounds from a weight I would be confident with, and 17 pounds from my goal weight! I'm thrilled. I know I can keep this up and I KNOW I'm going to actually have that sexy spring! Woo hoo!
I also picked a reward for myself! Once I've lost 20 pounds (12 pounds from now), I'm going to sign up for Zumba classes! I've wanted to do them forever, and once I've lost a little more weight I'll feel more comfortable jumping and dancing around other people! And I also figure that will help me lose the five pounds I'll have left.
So if I can lose 2 pounds a week, that means by the middle of April I'll be taking those classes!
I'm also excited to be making progress because warmer weather is coming! I saw a 61 degree day in the forecast and I was like NO WAY, I am NOT ready to stop hiding myself under sweaters! I'm ok with cold weather for a few more weeks!
Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and make a note of progress and success. I'm so happy! I'm glad I decided to cut my calories, I'm glad I convinced myself I could do it, I'm glad I've stuck with it, and I'm glad I'm seeing progress. Hooray!!!!
